I like the declaration that TrainWreck presents
TrainWreck's work sucks
I can do better than TrainWreck
There is no need for such
There's not an appropriate option to this survey

RE: The Declaration of Independence
In the philosophical sense of law, anything that causes cognizant people to do something is apart of the social contract theory, and that leads us to the classification order of law - unalienable rights being of the higher orders, and natural law (scientific), probably being the highest.

Humanism - ontological doctrine that posits that humans define reality
Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality
Atheism - political doctrine opposed to theist doctrine in public policy

RE: The Declaration of Independence
And yet you still define things as self evident

What would someone really think qualifies to that layer of knowledge?

You're getting into knowledge classification (of law, in this instance). And an advanced feature of my chartering system guides the classification system for law. The "unalienable rights," or human rights, will most likely be subset to sovereignty law - defining the individual. Still somewhat philosophical, but relative to the better descriptions that we can implement for the more substantive aspects of the entire system of law that we can define now that they could not define in 1787 - they just did not have the activity/commerce that we have had for the past fifty years to lead us to define the possibilities more accurately.

'apart' means something entirely different from 'a part'. You continually use the wrong one.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Bowing
And in this instance it seems to mean the opposite of what I wanted it to be. I have been using it incorrectly.Facepalm

If you can direct me to my past uses of it, I would be interested in reviewing the anomaly, and assessing its effect on my intentions.

Yeah, I agree, it is not true; but that would probably lead to the assumption of racism, and I am not prepared to parse the better concept.

Quote:Enter your name and email at the left, then choose which signer’s style you want your signature to be in: John Adams, Josiah Bartlett, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, or Thomas Jefferson.
Quote:Make sure you are certain you want to sign the Declaration -- remember, the original signers were committing treason when they put quill to parchment in 1776! By signing this document, they were openly staging one of the first rebellions of the Revolutionary War, rejecting British rule in the colonies.

RE: The Declaration of Independence
Its best translation into plain english was made in 1921

Twain might've done it better still but Mencken's take is superb enough.
